Summary
  • As the wind and rain beat down on the isolated farmhouse, the new neighbour, Mr. Lockhead visits his surly landlord, Heathcliff. When the foul weather prohibits his return, Lockwood is forced to spend a torrid night in the appropriately named Wuthering Heights. On his return home, Lockwood discovers the tumultuous story of how Heathcliff, a foundling, came to own both houses, of his love for Catherine Earnshaw and why he stalks the house like a man in purgatory
  • Wuthering Heights is Emily Bronte's classic tale of all-consuming love. When Mr. Earnshaw encounters Heathcliff, a ragamuffin orphan, he kindly brings the boy into his home and makes him part of the family. And from the start, Heathcliff falls hopelessly in love with the daughter of the house, the beautiful, headstrong Catherine. She adores him, too, but when a wealthy neighbour woos her, Catherine's material instincts get the better of her, and she agrees to marry the man. However, Catherine discovers that she cannot forget Heathcliff so easily... and that not even death can make them part
  • Set against the stark beauty of the English moor, the mysterious gypsy boy Heathcliff, who has been adopted by the Earnshaw family, discovers his soul mate in his stepsister Cathy. As a man unable to have the love of his life, he seeks vengeance against anyone who comes between them
